Street Child Games – Rio – 14 – 20 March 2016

Team Egypt


#TeamEgypt is represented by Doaa, Hesham, Nada and Hagar. They are participating in the Street Child Games to challenge the negative perceptions of children on the streets in Egypt; showing society that with the right support and guidance, these children are capable of achieving so much: even representing their country.


Team Egypt is part of NAFAS, a grassroots sports organisation in Cairo running outreach activities on the citys streets in parallel with other NGOs. Its aim is to start and manage sports programmes that give street children and young people at risk a place to breathe. This goal is the inspiration for the name NAFAS, which means breathe in Arabic. Through sport, participants can receive help tailored to their needs (with social reintegration as the ultimate role). Founded in 2012, over the years NAFAS has expanded its outreach. While priority is given to those with more desperate needs, The organisation has a policy not to turn anyone away. Alongside NAFAS, the young people of Team Egypt are supported by FACE for Children in Need, and the Banaty Foundation.
